APRO Member Hometown Rent To Own will be giving out free Thanksgiving Feasts – the fixings for 150 – 200 full holiday meals – to local families in need. The event, scheduled for this Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Hometown store in Salamanca, NY, is open to the public. Participants may choose the foods they want, including mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, stuffing and dinner rolls. Participants will also be given a gift card to Sander’s Markets Parkview, where they can pick up a turkey.

This is the third year Hometown has held this event as a thank-you for its supportive community. Co-owners Christopher Fiegl and Matthew Radecki founded the company four years ago, and Salamanca has helped the business flourish.

“We just want to give back to the community that has done so much for us and made us an overnight success,” says Radecki. “From the time we got the keys and filled up with inventory, we have literally had a line of customers out the door. Thanks to Salamanca, we knew our business was going to work from the very first year.”

Local radio station MIX 101.5 FM will host a live broadcast as the company distributes the Feasts from their storefront and holds several other giveaways during the event.

“The holiday season is especially hard for many people who just can’t afford a big to-do, so we like to help bring families together each year with this event,” Radecki shares. “Last year was a great success, and we hope to keep it growing every year to help more and more people within our community.”
